I made some pretty simple drawers for my workbench. The sides are 1/2" plywood with 1/4" MDF, or hardboard bottoms and dividers. On two large drawers that hold circular saws and other heavier items I used 1/2" plywood for the bottoms. Those bottoms were just glued and nailed with the bad nailer.
All the drawers are 24" deep with full-extension slides. I made three sizes of drawers. Most are 5 1/2" tall, two are 17" tall (for larger tools like circular saws, nail guns, and drills), and I have four drawers that are 2 3/4" tall. The shallower drawers make it easier to find smaller items rather than digging to the bottom of 5 1/2" drawer.
You can see from the photo that I've been using a simple lock joint to join the drawer fronts, backs, and sides. I made the joint on my router table but it could just as easily be done with the table saw. All the joints are glued and I always give them a couple of hits with the brad nailer to hold things while the glue dries.
On the smaller drawers I have 1/4" dados cut in the sides about every 4" so I can insert removable dividers to keep things organized.
